Innisfree Village is looking for motivated, passionate, and conscientious candidates dedicated to rural community living with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A life-sharing experience with Innisfree Village gives individuals unique experiences for discovery and growth:
Through the development of meaningful relationships and connections with individuals from all walks of life.
Through the building of skills and knowledge in community living, caregiving, and therapeutic work.
Through opportunities to have a positive impact on the lives of others.
Life at Innisfree requires patience, a good sense of humor, and a willingness to learn and adapt. Where profound joys and real-life challenges go hand in hand, emotional maturity and health are essential factors for success. We are seeking individuals who are compassionate, enthusiastic, and committed to a meaningful service experience.
Previous experience working with individuals with disabilities is a plus, but not required. During a volunteer's first month, training is provided in all areas of village life through a combination of structured instruction and hands-on application, with guidance and support along the way from a variety of community members. The orientation period is designed to give our volunteers a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities, while also embracing and utilizing an individual's existing knowledge, skills, abilities, and life experiences in order to create a well-rounded and personalized training and orientation experience.
- Candidates commit to one year of service, with the option of additional year(s) of service
- Candidates will have the equivalent of a high school diploma. Further college or comparable experience is a plus.
- Candidates exhibit patience, flexibility, and a sense of humor.
